Exit Keenum

No Heisman from a non-BCS school this year. 

Case Keenum is out after his team’s stunning loss to UTEP tonight (score isn’t finished as I write, but the game is decided).

There’s always 2010.

    I have to disagree HP. Let’s just compare McCoy and Keenum against common opponents.

    McCoy versus UTEP: 286 yards, 3 TDs, 1 INT
    McCoy versus Texas Tech: 205 yards, 1 TD, 2 INT

    Keenum versus UTEP: 536 yards, 5 TDs, 0 INT
    Keenum versus Texas Tech: 435 yards, 1 TD, 1 INT

    It your going to say McCoy is out if Texas loses a game then I get your logic, but based on playing it would be a shame for voters to not put Keenum in the mix.

    Sorry, Paul, but we all know the Heisman race isn’t about pure stats. If your team isn’t in a BCS bowl at the end of the year, your star is dimmed significantly.

    As a UH alum, I’d have loved to see Keenum win it this year (and erase the specter of Andre Ware!), but it’s not gonna happen. He’ll possibly place, but Tebow or McCoy will likely get the nod, thanks in part to their conference affiliations.

    There’s always 2010.

    Exactly. I’m not saying that Keenum can’t place second, but he can’t win. That’s all.
